Your Key AGM Info
Our 2015 season is drawing to a close and we are preparing for our closing events. One of the Board's key responsibilities is to hold LPTC's Annual General Meeting ("AGM") where all Adult and Intermediate members are invited to attend, review and vote on key items including the Club's financial reports and the nominees for the 2015/2016 Board of Directors. This year a very important item will be presented for membership approval--our revised Bylaw/Constitution-- which we have reviewed with you through newsletters, in an Open Forum in August and on the website.

We are now pleased to share all the AGM documents with you online. You can access them by pressing the "Your Key AGM Info" button above or below. Your AGM package includes the Notice of Meeting/Agenda and Board Nominees for 2015/2016, the 2014 AGM minutes, the 2014 and year-to-date 2015 Financial Statements, the revised Bylaw/Constitution, the Application for changes to our Letters Patent, and for the first time Proxies, for those members who cannot attend the AGM. Every member entitled to vote will receive in the mail along with the Notice of Meeting/Agenda/Nominee Slate, a personalized Proxy which we encourage you to use if you cannot attend the AGM in person.  A sample Proxy is shown online, but only your personalized Proxy may be registered. We will be displaying these documents at the AGM, but no hard copies will be provided, so please print out any documents you might want from the website, and bring them along to the meeting.

Mark this date: Our AGM will be held on Saturday, October 24, 2015 starting at 10:30 am at Glenview Presbyterian Church, 1 Glenview Avenue, not far from the Club (same location as last year).

Voting at our AGM is both a right and a privilege, so we encourage you to read, ask questions and come prepared. If you have any questions, please direct them to our Club Secretary, Caroline Gray at, or any member of the Board. 
Your Key AGM Info
Normally our Fall Junior lessons run every weekday from 4-6 pm through September and early October. This year lessons will not be held on Thursdays, but because this time is traditionally reserved for Juniors, we will be reserving this time slot for Junior play. Every Thursday from 4-6 pm will be Junior Court Time. Juniors can come down and play with a friend, with a parent, another member of the club--they will have priority. Please be respectful of their right to play.
We welcome feedback and suggestions from our members to help improve the Club and enhance member experience. For those who don't know, we have "Compliments, Suggestions, Concerns" forms located in the clubhouse in the plastic holder on the side table. They can be deposited into the Guest Fee box for forwarding to the Board. We will highlight questions / comments and responses in our newsletters. You do not need to include your name, but it's helpful in case we need to clarify your suggestion / comment. You may also email comments to:
